Given the tough economic times in the United States (and elsewhere) and renewed discussions about how to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, this site, while not new, is timely. Eartheasy, a personal offering from Greg Seaman, grew out of Seaman's experiences living with his wife and children on a rural island in Vancouver. The site aims "to encourage, inspire and inform people of the inherent wealth of a simpler, less material lifestyle." The site design mirrors its mission, with a front page presenting six snapshots that connect to the main sections -- live, grow, eat, play, wear, and give. Each of the sections offers information on a number of topics ranging from energy efficient appliances to natural lawn care to kite flying and much, much more. The live section includes a page of briefly annotated links for readers looking for more information, and Seaman welcomes suggestions for additions to the site. A nice stop for those looking to pare down their lives or thinking about how to focus more of their attention on what is most important to them. Seaman explains, "If the Eartheasy site gets you thinking about what constitutes true wealth in your life, and the implications our lifestyle and consumer choices have on the environment, then this web project will have been truly worthwhile."
